Concierge.com's insider take:
This fancy resort's cliff-top open-air restaurant, over Meads Bay, set the standard early on for Anguilla's culinary reputation. It certainly has distinguished origins: Its first menus were devised by Michelin three-star chef Jo Rostang. After his death, consulting duties were taken over by his son, Michel, who has two Michelin stars at his eponymous Parisian restaurant, and longtime Head Chef Alain Laurent. The menu is changed seasonally to include French and Mediterranean classics re-imagined with local touches. Try the roasted whole lobster with basil butter sauce or the mahi-mahi with eggplant caviar in a tomato vinaigrette. Oenophiles will be impressed by owner Leon Roydon's 25,000-bottle wine cellar, which focuses on marquee-name Burgundies and Bordeaux. In keeping with the resort's elegantly casual style, no jackets or ties are required in this, the most formal of all Anguillan restaurants. The hotel's informal beachfront Le Bistro Restaurant, with its extensive Children's Menu, tends to keep them out of the main restaurant during lunch.
Open daily 7 to 11 am. Closed September through October.
